Google announced that it will hold a new product launch conference at 23:00 on October 6, Beijing time, to launch the Pixel 7 / Pro series and a variety of new accessories.
The Google Pixel 7 / Pro series will be equipped with the Tensor G2 processor. At present, the Pixel 7 Pro has appeared on the Geekbench benchmarking platform, revealing the performance of the new processor for us.
According to Geekbench data, Google Tensor G2 is an octa-core processor. The CPU is equipped with two 2.85GHz large cores, two 2.35GHz medium cores, and four 1.80GHz small cores, while the GPU is equipped with Mali-G710.
Google’s first-generation Tensor processor is equipped with 2 2.8GHz X1 large cores + 2 2.25GHz A76 medium cores + 4 1.8GHz A55 small cores, and the GPU is Mali-G78 MP20 (20 cores). It is expected that the new CPU uses the same core, but the frequency is increased, and it is the result of using the 4nm process.
The GPU is changed from Mali-G78 to Mali-G710. According to Arm, the performance can be increased by 20%, the power consumption can be reduced by 20%, and the machine learning speed can be increased by 35%.
In the end, the Google Pixel 7 Pro CPU with Tensor G2 scored 1068 for single-core running and 3149 for multi-core running. The previous-generation Pixel 6 Pro’s CPU scored around 1050 in single-core running and around 2750 in multi-core running, only a small improvement.
In addition, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is pre-installed with Android 13, but the kernel version is only Linux 5.10.
Google has announced the appearance of the Pixel 7 / Pro series, and the overall design continues the “explosion-proof shield” style of the Pixel 6 / Pro series.
The full image specifications of the Pixel 7 / Pro have been exposed before, and the leaker Kuba pointed out that both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will use the 11MP Samsung 3J1 as the front sensor, the same Samsung GN1 main sensor, and the Sony IMX381 ultra-wide angle as the previous generation, The difference is that this year’s Pro telephoto sensor has been changed to Samsung GM1.
In addition, Google Pixel 7/7 Pro has passed FCC certification, which shows that it supports Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth, and NFC functions. Previously broke the news that the Google Pixel 7 series will use a 2K flexible screen, pre-orders will begin on October 6, and sales will begin on October 13.\
Both models of the Google Pixel 7 series will have only two storage options, a maximum of 256GB and a minimum of 128GB. At the same time, Pixel 7 series phones do not support storage expansion via MicroSD card. Quant said that may be because Google wants users to use its cloud services. In terms of delivery time, after the release of the Pixel 7 series mobile phones, it is expected to start shipping within 2 weeks.
